I did a little research this morning and found out that rom what I see, Patrick mcHenry is the only NC Congressman holding town hall meetings during the recess.
I believe that the reason our other Dem Congressmen are not holding events is because the right wing terrorists, sorry I mean lunatics are getting inside their heads.
I think that what we as Blue NC members need to do is contact our respective members of congress and even congressmen from other districts and tell them that we will be at any town hall event they hold, in force, to drown out the right wing terr- lunatics, sorry I can't help using that word.
We should also think about setting up our own town hall events. If you go to http://healthcareforamericanow.org/
there is a place to sign up and create your own town-hall event. What we should do is i our congressmen won't put on thir own events, we should set them up and invite them to the event with the full confidence that we will protect them from the right wing terroris- sorry extremists.
I am planning on setting one up for Rep. Price I know James lives in my district also so if anyone wants to help or set up their own events let me know or check out the link I posted.
You're setting up a town hall for David Price?
Does he know that?
Where do I go and where does Art Pope send you a thank you card?
I actually like David Price is the funny part. You should probably stop helping him now.
Ask Art if he could just send a check instead.
Soros keeps stiffing us.
North Carolina. Turning the South Blue!
Ron Paul Single wins Bill Maher Stupid Award?
At a recent town-hall meeting in South Carolina, a man stood up and told his Congressman to "keep your government hands off my Medicare," which is kind of like driving cross country to protest highways.
I'm the bad guy for saying it's a stupid country, yet polls show that a majority of Americans cannot name a single branch of government, or explain what the Bill of Rights is. 24% could not name the country America fought in the Revolutionary War. More than two-thirds of Americans don't know what's in Roe v. Wade. Two-thirds don't know what the Food and Drug Administration does. Some of this stuff you should be able to pick up simply by being alive" * Bill Maher
You can catch him tonight on HBO making this new rule on GOP stupidity
Ok Ron Paul Troll,]
Ok Ron Paul Troll, if you rea my original post you would see that I am planning on setting one up for David Price that means I am still in the exploratory stages quite like you and your political views. Why don't you take a side instead of spouting off your Ron Paul Bat%^&% Crazy Ideas.
And Yeah, I still haven't recieved a cent from George Soros but he is supposedly bankrolling the party. I sure could use that money what with all the taxes th republicans make me pay.
Okay, James Carville
You show us how "Bat%^&% Crazy Ideas" get done.
Problem with your political
Problem with your political POV is that Ron Paul LOST. IN A LANDSLIDE. The republican party is so turned off to the Ron Paul "Revolution" that they chose a moderate republican "McCain" over Paul.
When Ron Paul becomes anything other then a crazy old coot congressman from Texas then you can talk.
I can see now why you are a Single.
Have you met that MooMoo lady yet?
That aside, I just want you to know I fully support government programs to bring the world to disabled children via the Internet.
I just think it should be one way. No keyboard.
Negative Comments About Disabled Children Are Wrong!
I just came across this post and wanted you to know that there are some of us on here that have children with special health care needs that do not appreciate your comment. What you said was just plain insensitive and wrong. There are many children with special health care needs that are required to have a limited contact to the outside world due to their conditions and using the computer and the internet is a wonderful tool for them to express themselves and make friends.
Thanks for writing that
I'm out of town right now, and not thinking much about NC politics or BlueNC ... but this person may well have crossed the line in terms of "intolerably obnoxious" - a significant accomplishment by any standard.
What the hell are yout
What the hell are yout talking about. Where in any of my posts did mention anything about disabled children and the internet?
Look. Go Troll somewhere else. I don't see what you think you can achieve here at BlueNC. Everyone here is Progressive and is not going to be influenced by your viewpoints.
MrMayhem, ignore the troll
Please don't feed the troll and he'll crawl back under the bridge he came from. Oh, and step over his slime trail there..... :)
Elected Officials Holding Town Halls
I called Kay Hagans office yesterday. She still hasn't worked out her schedule but I was told that she is planning on holding a Health Care Reform Town Hall in August and they would be putting the information on her website when they have the schedule worked out. I also called Bob Etheridge's office and was told that he never holds public town halls but will be traveling the individual counties and setting up personal appointments with constituents. Doug Berger said he is planning on holding a Health Care Reform Town Hall in Granville County sometime in August and is supposed to let me know when.
